"This radical multi-form collective investigation traces the cutting edge of how bodies and subjects are rendered technologically. It proposes multi-dimensional forms of intervention, and claims an experimental horizon of the possible, shattering the mantra of unavoidability." — Olga Goriunova
The project aims to be a hub for discussion, exchange, debate, research and the co-creation of events, and aims to exhibit a wide range of formats by artists and activists.
With NoisyLeaks! we hope to create a space and moment to share knowledge, practical skills and encourage freedom of information by engaging with artistic and activist practices.
#NoisyLeaks! aims to collectively expose and celebrate the historical and cultural heritage of WikiLeaks and its influence on world-wide practices.

> Maybe, trying so hard to create a single, global, repository of "truth" is very naive and wrong since the start. Everyone is being forced to adhere to "a single definition of truth". Any second opinion is not allowed at all.
> ... Being open is not necessarily good. It's actually a neutral term. Know when to open and know when to close.
Today I presented my paper On Cultivating The Installable Base at Participatory Design Conference (#PDC22).
In it, I argue that existing F/LOSS alternatives (such as Mastodon) are important resources when it comes to participatory work with groups looking to organize their own digital infrastructure, as it allows them to practically start inquiring in the nature of those alternatives and start thinking from there. However, to even consider them for such a process, the quality of those alternatives needs to be sufficient. So if PD wants to bring about computational alternatives, improving the quality of existing F/LOSS applications in concrete and material ways should be an important research outcome.

Habitat announces the opencall MEGASTUDIO! Habitat is a permanent cult(r)ural settlement and collective workshop carrying participatory practices of living (and publishing) within and beyond the local scale.
Megastudio is aimed at individuals, informal and formal collectives operating in the fields of arts, design, architecture and cultural production.
The residency is aimed at forming an editorial-curatorial team that knows how to relate to the archives, experiments, documentation, artifacts, recordings, and experiences collected along the path that led Habitat to transform itself from a temporary event into a cult(r)ural settlement, permanently established in the territory of Romagna toscana.

C’est pas moi, c’est l’algorithme
Présentation et discussion avec Peggy Pierrot
Société algorithmique, biais algorithmique, capitalisme algorithmique, gouvernance algorithmique... les mots associés avec les adjectifs dérivés d'algorithme apparaissent dans tous les domaines de nos vies dans les sociétés numérisées qui sont les nôtres. On parle d'algorithme bancaire, d'algorithme prédictif, de machine
Call for Participation:
OPENCOIL workshop 🔋🔋🔋
"The pavements of many cities have been flooded by so-called 'dockless sharing vehicles'. This workshop explores the impact of such micro-mobility services on (public) urban space by re-appropriating their decentralised infrastructure as a space for experimentation, while also addressing the conditions and effects of this infrastructure."
Deadline: August 21
